Corporate Social Responsibility

Playing a part in supporting the communities we work and live in has always been an important focus for HWR. While we recognise that we cannot make donations to everyone who approaches us we do support a wide range of organisations and individuals.

Proactive Drive

One such initiative we support is Proactive Drive, a Driving Skills Enhancement Programme provided free to students aged between 16 and 19 years of age throughout the South Island and lower North Island (the goal is to offer this nationwide) who already hold a current drivers licence. Young drivers under the age of 25 years remain the most at-risk group on the road. Just obtaining your driver’s licence does not mean we become good drivers. Proactive Drive was formed to provide young people with the practical knowledge and skills to stay safe on our roads. This is an organisation that we have supported for many years now and will continue to do so as we are passionate about keeping our youth safe.  For more information on Proactive Drive click here.
